It's got potential. I enjoy the readings. It would be nice to have it updated with more. It's very user friendly and reasonably easy to find things. What I'm pretty unhappy about is the daily inspiration function. It works for awhile, but then eventually gives you the same words day after day. That's pretty ridiculous. I also thing the addition of the chalice is goofy...
A wonderful addition to daily life. The daily nugget of spirituality, scheduled to my needs, has brought a continued sense of faith even during the youth-young adult transition, where so many others lose touch with their UU upbringing. As a young adult from an obscenely long line of UUs, this app has helped fill the gap I was left with following the move off to college. Not to mention how cute and just nice the chalice is, especially with the feature of being able to actually blow out the flame. Overall, one of the most fulfilling apps ever.
Overall good I find the chalice lighter a little hokey, but it's cute. I love the daily readings, but I wish they were more easily searchable. A few days ago I read one about the power of words to heal or harm, but then my phone rang and it was gone. Just try a search for the word "words"!! Overall I'm very pleased and look forward to seeing further development and additional readings.
Just the coolest thing I'm thrilled to have a UU app. How clever, inspirational, useful, beautiful... Thank you UUA for bringing this to Android!
Disappointing As a reasonably tech savvy young adult as well as a lifelong UU. I found myself disappointed with this app as a whole. The one positive feature that it has is the chalice. However the drawbacks are quite numerous. There is not alot of readings, simple/boring presentation, and where it really lost me was the complete lack of any youth or young adult material. As the future of our movement and a huge demographic for something like this it might be wise to include. Poor use of a potentially great platform-adam
Works great on my Motorola Droid 2 Thanks ... the app works great. For future releases, it would be nice to have a tie-in to the "find a congregation" info on the UUA web site. It would be very handy for those who travel to have ready access to information about nearby congregations (e.g. their web sites, location info hooked into Google Maps, etc).
